Orthodontist appt update

I had my 2nd adjustment appt today and i'm a bit disappointed that i didn't see Mr.Dibiase again as the clinic was running late so i saw a lady who i have previously seen once before when i broke my brace back in December. I now have the last stage of wire in on my top teeth, also now along with elastics on to close the extraction gaps. The bottom teeth have abit of catching up to do, as today the second to last stage of wire was put on. While i was there i asked if they could roughly tell how long it would be until i was put onto a waiting list for surgery and was told that once my bottom teeth have caught up with the top and everything perfectly straight and there are no more gaps they will take moulds again and fit them together to see how my teeth would look after surgery. Once they have those moulds and are happy with them is when they will place me on waiting list. 

My next adjustment is booked for 21st august and i will be having the last stage of wire and elastics placed in on the bottom :) 

I will try and get another picture of my top teeth with the elastics on uploaded in the next few days as my camera seems to like to blur when taking close up pictures of my teeth, so i have to take quite a few until i get a good one!

7 months in braces!


Sorry i haven't posted in a LONG while, i will defiantly start keeping this blog up to date more often...

Cant believe its now been 7 months since i had my braces put on...and what a difference! I love how my teeth are lovely and straight already! :) I'm so pleased with everything so far and i cant wait for my extraction gaps to entirely close up...

I had my braces tightened for the first time on the 23rd March, i didn't get seen by Mr.Dibiase this time as he had to rush off to theatre. I was seen by a lady who covered for my ortho and was told my first four months of treatment had gone really well and that my top teeth had completely all moved back into a perfect position so she fitted in a much thicker looking wire to keep them in this position and fitted the next stage of wire through on the bottom. Just as she was finishing with my braces Mr.Dibiase came back into the room and agreed that everything was going well.   :) 

                         19th June is my next ortho appt to have my braces tightened.

                          I will defiantly post some more pics hopefully tomorrow...  :)
